, there are really to risks and here, the obvious risk to the economy and the short-term -- and in the short term, cbo said that if all of this item good demand comes out of this economy, then we will have a mild recession in the first part of 2013, but would be back in recovery by the second half of 2013. but a recession on top of where we are already certainly would not be good the even bigger risk is the risk to the economy long term if we continue to kick the can down road and do nothing about our fiscal problems. how do we think about these two things? there is an interesting report that came out several months ago from the carlyle group. i just want to briefly read out what it has concluded. every analyst would have a grand bargain that replaces the cliff with a credible alternative the faces in a reduction over a time frame of years. but in negotiated settlement failed to realize the lame duck. those -- the most likely alternative may be a simple extension of fiscal policy. while such an extension would include the near-term growth prospects, it would also relieve the pressure to substanti

in adopting measures to react to the international economy. that is why the mexican chairmanship decided to work hard to build a much broader consensus. we brought to the process the largest number of countries possible and listen to all the sectors we could, to the unions, to businessmen, to specific organizations, to young people as we brought all of their proposals to the pleary of the g-20. we had many administrative meetings. we have managed to bring divergent positions closer together. this was crucial to insure that the g-20 that we held in los cabos would seek -- would achieve the significant progress. months prior to this, there was a doubt as that -- as to the viability of the euro as a single currency for european countries. at the meeting, we endorsed with the support of the rest of the group, we endorsed a robust commitment not only to the bureau as a monetary unit but also to financial, physical, and political unity of europe zone. zone we brought in commitments from the international financial community. and also the international monetary fund. among the most significant

to invest in child care. we need to help our families work under our young children in this economy right now. we can do it. in community after community, you go to meetings and ask mothers, what is on your mind? what are the most important issues? low-income, middle-income, all mothers, they all say that the have the worst time finding child care. it is time that we do something about it. we have been having this debate for a long time. it is time that we do what is right by our kids. thank you. >> thank you. really great. i will ask you to focus on the very picture from your experience, if you would. how would you make the case to the country that these issues are important? how would you persuade the country to make investments in early child care? i know you care deeply about it and the folks in the room as well. >> thank you. i get grace and helen. we go thorugh the issues of safety. it is hard to find places where a young child can be safe. that is really the bottom line for that process of taking care of children. the struggle has been going on for many years. i thank you, helen, f

the country and a stronger foundation for our economy. i want to see us export more products. i was channeling my opponent for a second. [laughter] [applause] i want to see us export more products and outsource fewer jobs. my opponent, several years ago said, but detroit -- let detroit go bankrupt. when he said that he was talking about 1 in 8 ohio jobs. businesses in 82 ohio counties that count on the auto industry. we. no. we are going to -- we said no. we are going to bet on american workers and manufacturing. the american auto industry has come roaring back with 250,000 new jobs. so now you have a choice. we can give more tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas. don't boo, vote. or we can reward companies that are opening new plants in ohio, training new workers here in america, creating new jobs. because we have been working on it, you believe me. we do not just talk the talk. my opponent has been spending a lot of time in ohio lately and he has been talking tough about china. he says he is going to take the fight to them. he is going to go after the cheaters. i have to admit the
now. interviews he has given recently. >> i have been in the public eye economy and the need to get those problems straightened out. commanded the public attention issues? to judge that. what i can say is we need to describe what has happened and what is happening and what we need to do to get this under control, and right now, everybody is dancing around it and ducking as opposed to facing it, and if you have got cancer, the first thing you want to do is face it, right? we have got economic cancer at this point. we have got to fix it. >> that was the case in 1992 when you ran your first presidential campaign, and it was still the case when you ran your second in 1996. there was progress after that. a lot of people say that because of the campaigns you ran, we had surpluses and fought our way out of this, and now, it is worse than it was 20 years ago. >> exactly. >> how did we lose our way, compared to the late 1990's, when we fought our way out of this debt, to where we have gone from $4 trillion in debt when you were running to at $16 trillion? >> i am glad you mentioned that numb
personally? to clarify the bad economy. he did not get it. nton ate it up. [laughter] >> sitting here as a journalist, i am struck by two things. one, the moderator is doing a lot of interpretation. there seems to be a very genuine moment with a man who i remember as very controlled and calm. really rising to wait a minute. that is an interesting line. you should be the white house. that is a very human moment. does this format show for good or bad these types of things? >> interestingly, i think it is a mitt romney problem today. if someone said you have a number of homes and your wife drives a couple of cadillacs and your money is offshore, how do you feel my pain? i think there will not be this kind of surprise on the rodney's face when this comes at a town hall meeting, but again, any kind of window we get, even into their thought process sees when they are confronted with an articulated left-field questions really does help us understand who they are. as bill clinton just goes over there and does that i lock on this woman. she is only person in the universe. >> he never asks her,
court, because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play among undecided voters could but it is a motivator for one space to get out and get to the polls because you want this person to replace justice ginsburg when she retires, for example. and health care is really the only thing that resonates. if there is any possible outcome is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salience in something like a presidential debate. so other than health care, i do not see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. and here's why. no major national political figure has attacked affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it isind of remarkable. the republicans who, during the 1990's for a while, we're seeing some sort of political profit attacking affirmative action given the polls don't do
in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama bin laden, who has taken out some of the terrorists in yemen, including awlaki, an important terrorist figured there. president obama, because of his actions and his impressive record, has boosted american credibility in some parts of the world. governor romney has been trying to assert that president obama is not strong enough on foreign policy, that he has not supported israel and off, or has been not a
this is an election about the economy. when americans go into the voting booths, the have deuce am id themselves, and i comsm i comfortable with having this president as commander in chief? mitt romney did not mention it. it was the first time a candidate for president office has not mentioned the ongoing war as part of his political speech to the american people. it is very curious. one of the reasons it is not a bigger issue is that the president has articulated a clear plan. we have 49 other countries, plus the afghans, who have gone into the plan. ultimately, the american people do want to see a transition and what to see the end of the decade of war and the end of thousands of americans being in harm's way. that has significantly reduced the risk that afghanistan poses to our vital interests. i think americans understand where we are and that they are generally supportive of the president's policy in this regard. >> i don't think there is a connection between the votes and our policy in afghanistan. i think traditionally republican have enjoyed an advantage, politically, among veterans. i t
